CROSS STITCH PATTERN, DESIGNED BY Lesley Teare Designs
Here's Fantasy Ride, Lesley Teare's delightful cross stitch design featuring a fairy flying off into the sky on a white horse.
Garlands of Flowers and butterflies surround the rider, adding joyful colors to the pattern. There are some highlights of blue metallics, used in particular for the fairy's wings, as well as some seed bead detailing.
There is a great sense of movement and action in this design, emphasized by the horse and rider's position as well as the play on perspective, with large close-up flowers and butterflies contrasting with the ones in the far distance.
All Lesley Teare charts come with an extensive Cross stitch Guide detailing all stitches including fractional stitches.
